Double-Tapered Radiopaque Translucent Fiber Post System
BISCO’s patented* D.T. Light-Posts are constructed from unidirectional, pretensed, quartz fibers bound in a resin matrix. This design produces a post with flexural strength exceeding that of metal posts but with a low modulus of elasticity similar to dentin, allowing it to absorb functional stress and prevent root fractures. Compared to competitive posts, BISCO fiber posts have a long clinical track record of success. The D.T. Light-Post is available in 4 sizes, each with two tapers to mimic the natural shape of the canal and to conserve tooth structure. The D.T. Light-Post is packaged with color-coded rings to simplify identification and placement.
Translucency enhances esthetics and light transmission
Radiopacity allows for visibility on radiographs
Double-tapered design closely conforms to the shape of the prepared canal to minimize dentin removal and cement layer
Unidirectional, pretensed, quartz fibers bound in a resin matrix gives it a greater flexural strength than metal posts
Maximum strength - no notches or serrations to compromise strength
Fiber optic design allows light to traverse through the post so it can be cemented with light activated materials
BISCO’s fiber posts have been placed in over 3,400 cases as part of a decade long multi-center clinical trial. Three (3) post fractures and zero (0) root fractures have been documented**
Retreatment is quick with the D.T. Light-Post Removal Kit and a low-speed handpiece
